Morristown opened its fire station at 161 Speedwell Ave. on Friday night to any residents who have lost heat or power from the nor’easter.

It will remain open to residents for the duration of the outages, according to town hall.

Morris Township plans to open its municipal building on Woodland Avenue to Township residents at 8 am on Saturday, March 3, 2018.  Earlier on Friday the Township opened its Mt. Kemble fire house as a warming station and battery-charging center.

Morristown Mayor Tim Dougherty’s office says JCP&L aims to restore electricity on Saturday.

As of late Friday night, JCP&L reported 2,652 customers without power in the Township; 2,485 Morristown customers lacked electricity, and another 322 in Morris Plains were affected.

If you must venture outdoors overnight, take care. Black ice conditions are forming, strong gusts persist, and many roadways are closed because of fallen trees.
